Hello Everyone,

Thank you for your comments. You are all so thoughtful, and I appreciate that you stop by for a visit.

I did a little of the 'running around' today. I will do a little more tomorrow, and a little more on Tuesday, and then that's it! Actually, our family Christmas party isn't until next Sunday, so that will still leave me a couple more days to 'run around.' emoticon

MARYJEANSL - I remember those days of wrapping the boy's gifts only a few hours before they would get up on Christmas morning. It was hard work, but I think I enjoyed it. No children in my house any longer, and with five 'frisky' cats who figured out ways to destroy all gift bags and tear the paper and bows off wrapped gifts, any gifts that are wrapped now have to stay in my bedroom. emoticon

MRS_TOAD - Glad you got your 'running around' done already. Yeah, the crowds aren't getting any smaller as Christmas approaches. I think I am going to do the Gift Card thing since my sons won't tell me anything that they want. That can all be done in one stop.

MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR to ALL! I gotta get out of here and get to the store. I may just be able to finish my shopping TONIGHT!

HUGS
Pam

    I hope you won't have too much more running around to do - I know that can leave you frazzled! emoticon

I know what you mean about cats and gift wrap!

Have a great day!

Hugs, Leslie emoticon

    We went to town tonight and it was busy. We nixed Wal-mart and went to Lowes and then Kroger and got a few groceries. I hope I don't have to go to town again.

    Yeah, as they get older it's harder to get things. I find that the gift cards work well.

wishing you a happy, healthy Christmas and new year.

TGIF!

Not that the weekend is much different from any other days of the week, but still I look forward to each weekend. Nothing will go on around here, but I only have one class on each Saturday and Sunday. I will be starting a second class on Sunday in January. I do not have any Fitness Floor hours again until next Friday night. Christmas will be over by then, and everyone will start thinking about the lifestyle changes they will make in the New Year. Not much action at the YMCA on Friday nights though. After the kids get back in school, things will start to 'pick up' again.

I need to do a lot of 'running around' this weekend. I hope that I will actually DO IT, because the time for procrastinating is OVER. No more weekends left to 'put things off' if I want to get them done by Christmas.

I hope you haven't procrastinated (Like I have), and that you can each take it easy this weekend. Whatever your plans, I hope yours is a GREAT WEEKEND!

HUGS
Pam

  I gave up on doing Christmas cards this year, which makes me sad, but something had to give. Otherwise, I am doing about as usual - which means the wrapping of presents for my kids will be done sometime between midnight and 5 A.M. Christmas morning. ;-)

    Hello Pam....
emoticon Don't let that clock beat you to Christmas.
But I know you can win...you have a lot of "exercise wisdom" over on that "lazy clock"!!!!
Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year in the event I find things get a little too crazy around here and don't get on SP like I should.
Hugs - Gwen

    I'm sorry you still have running around to do. I have been done for ages; just need some fresh broccoli on Monday and that's it.

I'm sure it will be quiet on the Fitness Floor next Friday.

Enjoy your holidays!

Hello Everyone,
I hope you are all doing well. I have canceled my Tues/Thurs evening class until January 5, so I am here earlier than usual. Attendance was very low, and since it was a commission class, it really wasn't worth my time. Hopefully, attendance will pick up at the first of the New Year. If not, I will cancel it permanently and find a location where people will come, OR I may just remain free on those two nights.

Another cold and dreary day, but no rain today after a lot of rain last night. I have started delivering my 'gift basket' of small gifts to my classes. They really get a 'kick' and sometimes a 'laugh' out of the gifts. I like doing that, especially since my classes take very good care of me at Christmas.

I hope you all have a GREAT FRIDAY and a WONDERFUL WEEKEND.

HUGS
Pam

    It sounds like a wise decision to cancel those classes for now. I hope they will pick up in the New Year.

We actually have some blue sky today - what a strange sight after all the cloudy days we've had lately!

I'm glad your classes take good care of you at Christmas!

Enjoy the holidays!

    Bet it'll get busy again after the 1st!

Otherwise that wouldn't be all bad to have a little free time!

    It was cold and dreary here too but we did not get the snow they predicted so I'm happy. I'm sure you will be busy after the first of the year.

Almost time to have everything logged in, so I am writing very quickly. Nothing new going on, and everything is going OK. I will try to write more tomorrow if I have time. I have been working a lot of hours on the Fitness Floor, and trying to do a little Christmas shopping for the boys. I am working tomorrow on the Fitness Floor from 1 - 5 PM, and I have morning and evening classes, so that is keeping me from being on the computer very much. I hope all of you are doing well. Take care, and keep in touch. Almost the weekend, and I hope yours is a GREAT ONE!

Hello Everyone,
This has been a very busy week for me. I have worked several shifts at the YMCA, had a huge ugly 'weed tree' cut down, plus other smaller trees and hedges, had my house pressure washed, and had a few other small jobs done. The same guy who has worked on my truck several times did these jobs. His wife worked too. They are great workers, and their fees are reasonable. Today was their last day to work probably until spring unless I come up with something else for them to do, and they gave me a beautiful white poinsettia and chocolates. That made me like them even more! emoticon

Next week will be busy too, but that is how I like it. Tomorrow there is a 'Toys for Tots' Zumbathon, but I will be unable to attend because I will be working. I am donating two toys though because I think this is a very important cause, and I want it to be successful.

Almost time to close down for the day, so I am out of here. Have a wonderful weekend. Take care, ALL!

HUGS
Pam

How great that you were able to get all that work done at your house.

I'm sorry you'll miss the Zumbathon, but it's kind of you to donate toys anyway.

Enjoy your weekend!
